after i dropped him off. >> erin's third grade son bear was in the front hallway of sandy hook elementary school when the shooling began and a teacher saved his life. erin is joining us from washington. erin, it's been almost two months now and there's a lot of people who are still struggling. first of all, just give us a sense of how you and bear and your family are doing right now. >> we are doing as well as can be expected. our entire community is struggling and we will struggle for quite some time. all things considered, we're back to a new normal routine and i'm just trying to move forward. >> erin, can you tell us what it is like to be in that room? we saw that gentleman there very emotional about losing his own child. i can imagine that there's a lot of things you're thinking about and feeling when you're in that room and you hear that day being replayed over and over. >> it's particularly emotional. i don't think there were hardly any of us there with dry eyes and yet we've heard these stories before. so i think the impact on the legislators and those of you at home wat
because it is just a story, and carnival could move on and still be a cruise tall tale. >> erin, back to you. what's the latest out there? >> well, we are waiting here and less than a mile here and as you have heard all of the people on board tell us, they can see the land and that is the big moment, and less than a mile away, and that means it is slowing down. so it could come and bd dock here any time and within the next 30 minutes as soon as that, and could take longer and then another four to five hours to get everybody off of the ship, but the hardest thing is the actual docking, because to give the viewers a sense, it is 200,000 tons and 2 1/2 football fields long and no stabilizer and no brakes. so you can imagine that parking the ship which is what it will do when it dox at -- it docks heret at the mobile port is going to be a dicey situation, and they want to make it right. that is why it is not as quick as you might think and it could take 30 or 90 minutes before people are really able to start getting off of that ship. we are here and waiting. more and more families a

hours away or new orleans which is three hours away. >>> erin, thank you very much. to call this a big night, a very busy night would be understating it. as we wait for that crippled cruise ship to come in, we have other breaking news. the remains have been positively identified as killer ex-cop christopher dorner. and another major crime spree developing as well. the world being rocked by the arrest of a sports hero who inspired all of us. oscar pistorius, the olympic blade runner now charged with murdering his girlfriend. we will begin now with this breaking news out at sea. thousands of people waiting for their ship to come in literally. exclusive view of the carnival triumph under tow. barely inching its way forward. it is heading into the port of mobile, alabama right now about 16 miles off shore. the cruise line expects it to arrive at some time after 11:30 eastern time. a tow line broke under the strain of this massive vessel. what you're looking at, exclusive video of the ship. and some other exclusive video. a look at the revolting conditions that more than 4,200 passengers an
